New here, but been coming here for info for awhile now. I own a 1988 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Wagon, and its cherry. 90k miles, and only 30k on the replacement OE crate 307 in it. Oh, I got if for a steal at $1750 btw lol!!! Anyways, Im not a mechanic, but I do work for a GMC car dealership, in the parts department. So, finding parts (at discount!) is not an issue necessarily. What IS the issue is finding OE performance upgrade parts for this giant beast.
What Im trying to do is mix 9c1 package parts, with 1996 Impala SS parts, and a few WS6 bits to make up a bulletproof suspension and drivetrain. The Impala parts are easy to find PNs for, but the 9c1 not so much. Does ANYONE know where I can find a complete list of parts, PNs included, that made up the 9c1 package? Even better, has anyone here done this themselves?
Btw, the 307 WILL eventually be replaced. Im thinking of a ZZ454HO and a 460 or 480 transmission. Is a 1ton truck 10 bolt beefier than a 96 Impala 10 bolt rear end? And, does anyone know how to fit a rear sway bar, OE, into a wagon that was never made with a rear sway bar? As far as I know, the wagon rear end is like, 4" wider than a sedan or coupe. So, no sway bars for anything else will work...
Any and all help is appreciated guys! Thanks in advance!
